Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I find out what is their goal. I need to know what is their past experience with horses. Do they have any fears? Have they had any bad experiences. How far have they gone with their lessons.
I start all students in a dressage seat which is simply lowering the stirups some and riding in a forward seat because this promotes good balance and it is safer. On their first lesson I teach them how to control an out of control horse with the one rein stop procedure. I also teach them how to prevent a horse from bolting. These two lessons are for the riders safety.
The first time they ride I evaluate their abilities. I can teach all styles of riding, Western, Jumping, English.
I also teach the Freestyle Join-up method which is good for working with difficult horses which is done in a round pen.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I started lessons at age 14 learning English and Jumping. I continued my studies at Meredith Manor, an equine college in West Virginia. I majored in horse training and after graduation I started work in Ocala, Fl. training yearlings.Several years later I moved and started my own horse training business and giving riding lessons.
